PRESS RELEASE


LaRouche: The United States Cannot Tolerate, for Any Reason, the ICC Indictment of Sudanese President Bashir

March 2, 2009 (EIRNS)—This release was issued today by the Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee (LPAC).

"U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton faces a crucial stepping stone during her current diplomatic endeavors," U.S. statesman Lyndon LaRouche said today, "on the issue of the expected ICC action against President Omar Bashir of Sudan. If the U.S. allows the ICC operation against Bashir to continue, the whole possibility of a U.S. policy disintegrates, globally."

A decision by the International Criminal Court (ICC) has been announced for March 4, involving a possible arrest warrant (i.e., an indictment) of Bashir for genocide or other crimes. LaRouche has previously demanded that the ICC—which was designed and financed by the Nazi-trained drug legalizer George Soros, and his British Foreign Office controller Lord Mark Malloch-Brown—be disbanded, because its very existence is a violation of human rights, since it is hostile to the principle of national sovereignty.

LaRouche today stated:

The fact is, that if Bashir is actually called into this ICC court, the entire policy of the world disintegrates. So under no conditions can Hillary Clinton accept anything that sounds like any endorsement, for any reason, for any price, of this ICC question. That is make-or-break for civilization as a whole: the make-break is the issue of the British and this operation.

This is also the issue of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown's visit to Washington, D.C. this week.

Brown, who is scheduled to arrive in Washinton on March 2 and meet with U.S. President Barack Obama on March 3, preceded his trip with an op-ed in the Sunday Times of London, which lyingly invoked Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal in order to insist on the reaffirmation of a "special relationship" between the United States and the United Kingdom. LaRouche added:

Gordon Brown and his government, the British government, is threatening to blow up the whole world, and the United States does not agree with that. There is no natural agreement or 'special relationship' between the United States and a British government which includes toleration for the Brown-Soros ICC policy.

Brown is a political dead man walking to Washington, and what he is proposing economically and otherwise is a global death policy. If such a policy were to be adopted by the United States, you could kiss the U.S. and the rest of the world good-bye. Because it's only by breaking up the British Empire, that there's a possibility of escaping a planet-wide general breakdown crisis.

This is one of those times when you're going to war," LaRouche said, "and there's one battle you've got to fight. All other battles are secondary. Because if Bashir is hauled to the ICC for trial, you have no U.S. policy for survival—the chain reaction is clear. Sometimes a particular battle, at a particular place, decides the entire war. This is one of those cases. It's not the last time that something like that will come up, but it's the one that's on the table right now.

An earlier Feb. 27 release by LaRouche PAC on the ICC-Bashir case is now receiving wide attention on the internet. Others have also recognized the dangers involved. For example, Andrew Natsios, a Sudan specialist and the former special envoy under George W Bush, expressed his strong disagreement with the ICC strategy, stating, according to the Los Angeles Times: "We could end up with another Rwanda, or Somalia, or Democratic Republic of the Congo, in which hundreds of thousands of people could be killed. We could end up with something much worse."
